Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Are you ready to feel the love? Regardless of your relationship status, it’s a great time to celebrate everything that makes you happy in life — including looking and feeling great! Just in time, we've got 5 steps to help you celebrate yourself on February 14th. Read on to get a gorgeous V-Day glow, both inside and out.
Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate
Nothing dulls your skin faster than dead skin cells that don’t get sloughed off on a regular basis. Do yourself (and your skin) a favor by using a cleanser that does both daily. Garnier’s SkinActive Clearly Brighter Argan Nut Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser uses sustainably sourced argan nut shells to smooth and polish skin, while fruit acids help to dissolve dirt, oil and makeup that can get stuck in your pores.
V-Day Beauty Tip: Don’t forget your feet! Give your tootsies their own V-Day treat by slathering them in body lotion, then covering them with socks while you sleep.
Step 3: Freshen Up Your Haircolor
Add brightness and depth to dull strands with a haircolor that colors and nourishes at the same time. Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme’s new Nudes Collection features three new shades inspired by the nude trend in makeup. Buttery Blondes Collection has three new bright golden shades and Very Berry couldn’t be more appropriate for V-Day, with two new dark burgundy hues. Each comes with an after color conditioner that uses avocado, olive and shea oils to hydrate and protect against dryness.
V-Day Beauty Tip: Keep your color fresh and vibrant by protecting it in these harsh winter months. Here’s how.
V-Day Beauty Tip: Always drink plenty of water, and make sure to exercise regularly. A truly healthy glow starts from the inside!
Step 5: Brush On Vibrant Color
Channel a romantic night in Paris with Lancôme’s La Palette La Rose. The kit contains six matte and shimmery eyeshadow shades along with three bright pink matte lip shades. Use the silvery gray shadow on eyes, with the black liner and deep pink lips for a rich, sultry effect. Or go light and flirty with an allover peachy-pink look on eyes and lips.
V-Day Beauty Tip: Make sure to moisturize your lips thoroughly before putting on a matte color. This will ensure it goes on smooth and lasts longer!
